Je Joue Uma Review

I think I’ve finally found it – the perfect first vibrator. The Je Joue Uma is simple yet powerful, unassuming yet bold, and packs just the right amount of punch for someone first entering the stimulating world of luxury sex toys. Made of silky smooth body-safe silicone, the Je Joue Uma feels great against your skin, and is certainly a step up from the usual first-vibrator suspects (you know, those cheap plastic butterfly vibrators that always smell a little funky no matter how many times you clean them).

Faces of Ecstasy: Orgasm as Art

As a sex educator and therapist, as well as a performing artist, I am always interested in artistic depictions of sex and sexuality. In my explorations, I’ve found two art projects that explore a similar theme: the depiction of orgasm as a meditation on art and culture. I know this sounds like all artsy pornography that’s ever been produced. However, these two artists have come up with a way of exploring the art of orgasm in a new way: without nudity or visible penetration. First, there’s Beautiful Agony (NSFW). Continue Reading →

Why Buy a Luxury Sex Toy?

Looking at the variety of high-end sex toys from distributors like Good Vibrations, Babeland, and MySecretLuxury, the price tags can be hard to swallow. You might think, “why spend over $100 on something that I can get for $15?” Well, for starters, you can’t get it for $15. But let me take some time to convince you why luxury sex toys are worth a pretty penny. Safety:

Sex Toy Review: We-Vibe Tango

They don't call it the lipstick shaped mini for nothing.

Searching for a petite, portable toy that offers multiple modes of vibration? You might fancy the We-Vibe Tango—a lipstick shaped mini vibrator that’s a lot more powerful than it lets on. What you need to know right off the bat: The Tango is waterproof, eco-friendly, and rechargeable. Equipped with eight different vibration modes, the toy lasts up to 2 hours of play on a single charge and will only take 90 minutes to get back to full power. Its charging adapter is interchangeable with other We-Vibe products; so that means you can use the same power accessory for the Tango, the Salsa, the Touch, the We-Vibe 3, etc. Continue Reading →

Product Review: Renew Toy Revitalizing Cleanser

Our friends over at Good Vibrations recently sent me a new product to review. It’s like Christmas all over again! The Renew Toy Revitalization Cleanser is such a handy little thing! Forget about interrupting sexy times to run to the bathroom to clean a toy- a swift pump of this little spray bottle and you’re good to go! This comes in handy especially if you share a bathroom- I can’t tell you how awkward it is to try to clean a sex toy in a dormitory bathroom. You get all kinds of weird looks. Continue Reading →

Sex Toy Review: We-Vibe 3

We-Vibe 3

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Good Vibrations, I bring to you a brand new toy review! The We-Vibe 3 Couple’s Vibrator is the third in a fantastic series of partner toys. This tiny silicone vibrator offers dual stimulation in two ways (internal/external, you/partner), and packs quite a punch! With this third model, they’ve amped up the power of the vibrations and extended the battery life. What I love:

It’s just so cute! Continue Reading →

The Pros And Cons Of The .XXX Domain

TKTK

The .XXX domain is here. For some, the official grand opening of the domain was the perfect way to kick off the month of December (Christmas came early for the adult entertainment industry – yes?). For others, the debut was a panic-filled race against the clock, hoping to snatch up any domain names in order to secure one’s identity/reputation. When I first heard of the news, I thought that the creation of the .XXX domain sounded like a wonderful idea. In my eyes, it could serve as a unique touch to a website – differentiating your adult site from the rest of the crowd. Continue Reading →

Sticky the Movie: A Documentary on Masturbation

I haven’t seen this documentary in its entirety yet – only the trailer – but it looks like an interesting and, dare I hope, liberating and informative look at masturbation as it’s been regarded in various societies (with a particular focus on Western cultures, it seems). They certainly reached out to a lot of great voices on the topic including Joycelyn Elders (former US Surgeon General), Carol Queen, Betty Dodson, Our Bodies Ourselves’ Wendy Sanford and Judy Norsigian, Nina Hartley and many more. Check out the trailer above and learn more about the documentary on their web site. Individuals and couples might find this gives them something to talk about and it’s certainly a must-screen for human sexuality educators, professors, etc. Follow us on Twitter @mysexprofessor  Continue Reading →

Sex Toys: The Perfect Stocking Stuffer

The holidays are upon us, and if you’re like me and put off buying gifts until the very last minute – the fact that Christmas is less than a week away may be stressing you out a bit. But fret no more MSP’ers, because I’ve got the perfect solution for your stocking stuffer dilemma:
SEX TOYS. Now obviously if you’re buying gifts for your grandmother, or perhaps – your boss, this will likely NOT be a good gift route to take (even if your grandmother is sex toy positive, she may not want to get one from you, her grandchild). But if you’re looking for an item to give your partner, sex toys are where it’s at. Plus, gift giving is the perfect opportunity for introducing sex toys to the relationship (no matter what holiday you celebrate!). Continue Reading →

Donating Sperm Can Be Scary

I recently ran across an interesting article on one of my favorite web sites, Cracked, that discusses “6 Terrifying Things Nobody Tells You About Donating Sperm.” Now, I’m a female bodied individual so I can only truly understand donating sperm to a certain extent. That said, I have several friends who have donated and an ex boyfriend who donated sperm throughout his undergraduate career (and now raises three children). And again, I’m biased and haven’t given donating sperm much thought, other than “It takes what, all of ten minutes? Decent money….” Continue Reading →
